An extension of an existing Church of England primary school from one to two form entry this project occupies a sensitive and difficult site.

The original school was situated within a conservation area adjoining a Grade I listed church and the remains of Barking Abbey, a scheduled ancient monument.

Archaeological remains, including medieval pavements and culverts, have been protected for future generations by constructing the school on a concrete raft.

An avenue of large London Planes constricted the site to the immediate west of the new wing. Under the influence of the trees classrooms at ground floor face west between the trees whilst rooms on the first floor face north and south over parkland.
